Under the agreement, Taiyo will supply organic and conventional ElderMune to food and beverage companies in North and South America.
NutriScience Innovations (Milford, CT) and Taiyo International (Minneapolis, MN) have entered into a joint partnership agreement through which Taiyo will supply organic and conventional ElderMune to food and beverage companies in North and South America. ElderMune is a combination of elderberry and Sunfiber that works synergistically to enhance the absorption of elderberry’s immune-supporting phytonutrients in the digestive tract. Sunfiber is meant to replace some of the natural elderberry fiber lost during the juicing process.
“We are excited to be partnering with Taiyo, leveraging their expertise in the food and beverage space to broaden the reach of ElderMune, enabling more brands and consumers to benefit from this versatile and functional elderberry ingredient,” said NutriScience Innovations president and CEO Alan Yengoyan, in a press release.
“Another reason why ElderMune is a good fit for Taiyo’s expertise is that the supply chain is controlled from the farm to the verified contract processor. And, as with our other premium ingredients, it is non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free and Kosher,” adds Taiyo International vice president Scott Smith. “These are premium qualities our customers expect from Taiyo’s ingredients.”
